"Do any of you have any objections to what I've just said?" Gu Ruoyun asked airily as she swept her gaze across the crowd.
The crowd was silent. No one dared to voice any objections.
Gu Ruoyun's delicate yet beautiful face lit up with a small smile when she noticed the expression on their faces. "Alright, since you have no objections, I shall make the decisions for the Northern Block Territory from now on!"
The only person in the room who openly opposes Gu Ruoyun was the Great Elder and he could not even stand up after being squashed by the Beast King. He could not speak and had to be carried away by the servants of the Lan family.
The Old Master of the Lan family sighed gently but did not say very much. He had the feeling that everything the Great Elder had done today would certainly cause the entire Lan family's destruction in the future.
"Haha," laughed Old Man Jiang as he congratulated Gu Ruoyun sincerely, "Congratulations, Gu girl. The Northern Block Territory can be considered to be now united by your hand. Besides, an old man like me would not have any objections to having a Grand Lord like you."
Gu Ruoyun smiled but did not say very much. Her clear and cold eyes were now turned towards the Great Elder who was being carried back home. A cold light then flashed across her eyes.
The Old Master of the Lan family sighed and shook his head exasperatedly. He took one last look at Gu Ruoyun before he turned around and left as well. His waning footsteps clearly displayed his old age.
"Miss Gu." Mu Youyou slowly stepped forward. There was an unreadable light in her pretty eyes. "Even though I'm here to represent my grandfather in this banquet, I will need to go back and discuss with grandfather on whether the Mu family will serve you before making a decision. What do you think?"
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and smiled in a nonchalant manner. "Regardless of the outcome from the Mu family's discussion, my decision will remain the same."
This means that no matter what, the Mu family must serve her. Otherwise, there will be no place for them in the Northern Block Territory!
Furthermore, this mainland has always honored the powerful. Hence, Gu Ruoyun did not see anything wrong with her decision.
"This should be it."
Meanwhile, a grim figure was standing tall in midair outside the city gates. His red robe fluttered gently in the wind as the man's handsome features lit up with a smile. "Since Yun'er has arrived in the Northern Block Territory, she must have headed to the Medicine Manner."
Grand Lord Hong Lian's heart filled with excitement as he thought of the daughter whom he had not seen in a long while. He slowly took a deep breath before his red robes shot across the sky like a flame, rushing towards the nearby Medicine Manor...
In the Lan family meeting hall, the Great Elder had a sunken look on his face as he sat down on a wooden chair. His expression was an extremely ugly sight to behold as his elderly face still carried that greyish-green hue which refuses to disappear.
"Great Elder, I think we should give this matter a rest."
The Old Master sighed gently and shook his head exasperatedly.
The unfortunate thing was that even though he was the Old Master of the Lan family, he was unable to control the council of elders. Otherwise, he would not have needed to consult the Great Elder for his opinion! The Old Master truly believes that making an enemy of Gu Ruoyun would not end well for the Lan family.
"Give it a rest?" The Great Elder sneered. "How can we let this matter fall? I will never let the members of the Medicine Manor get away with this! Besides, since we've already crossed her, she won't let us off either unless we eradicate her!"
The Old Master gently knitted his brows as he continued to speak, "Great Elder, you should have been able to sense that fat middle-aged man's power. If my guess is right, he's already above the rank of a Martial Supreme!"
